This submission to Parliament’s Women and Equalities Committee opposing the Westminster Parliament legislating on abortion for Northern Ireland was made on 8 December 2018 but was not published at that time due to the rules of the Committee. The Committee’s Report has now issued and is on Parliament’s website (www.parliament.uk). The Report contains within it a “minority report” proposed by Eddie Hughes MP which reflects some of the views in our submission.

Thanks to @DrLisaCameronMP for taking the time to meet us (virtually!) this morning. Really useful meeting on clergy visas, Gift Aid, and the future of Universal Credit and foreign aid spending. A busy few months ahead!
Important statement from our Bishops: "Catholics may in good conscience receive any of these vaccines for the good of others and themselves." #CovidVaccine
